Autobiographical account about a intelligent 11 year old girl from a relatively well off California family and her struggle with anorexia in the late 1970's. This was written in a loose diary type style and was well written and while at times tragic, and at times humorous, you really felt for Lori. I thought her mother and father were messed up, especially the vacuous, self centered and thoughtless mother. I wanted to strangle the mother. It's no wonder Lori ended up anorexic. A good, quick read.
